Join me for this year’s Homecoming Weekend featuring Arts and Culture at Penn. A record 2,220 alumni, parents, and friends enjoyed last year’s expanded Homecoming programming, and we are building on that momentum. You will find a full menu of activities that highlight the University’s strengths in arts and culture, along with the traditional Homecoming gatherings and sporting events.
Seize the opportunity to participate in a film editing workshop…to draw or work with clay…to engage with faculty in intimate classroom settings…and to visit a variety of exhibitions at campus galleries. Join with thousands of fans in cheering the Quakers to victory over Brown and reconnect with friends during QuakerFest and Taste of Penn.
Today’s Penn is defined by momentum – forward motion – but we are also characterized by another kind of motion, one that involves centrifugal and centripetal forces. The knowledge we create, the leaders we produce, and the service we render to the community spread ever outward – centrifugally. At the same time, what we draw in – centripetally – from our graduates and the community makes us stronger. Indeed, Penn exerts a terrific two-way gravitational pull.
As you look through these pages, I hope you will feel the pull and set in motion your own plans for Homecoming. Return to your center of gravity for a truly enriching experience.
